Personal profile

Public Profile

Dr Adikusuma is a research fellow in Genome Editing Laboratory led by Prof Paul Thomas. He completed his PhD at the University of Adelaide under Prof Thomas supervision. He is the recipient of a fellowship from CSIRO Synthetic Biology Future Science Platform. Dr Adikusuma discovered the strategies to eliminate an entire chromosome using CRISPR genome editing. Also, his landmark finding that CRISPR-Cas9 cleavage often induces large deletions (Adikusuma et al Nature 2018) cautions the biomedical community about unintended and hitherto unrecognised editing outcomes that could occur when performing germline CRISPR genome editing therapy. Together with his students and Prof Thomas, he is now developing a highly efficient strategy of using CRISPR genome editing for therapeutic of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy that could lead to effective clinical genome editing therapy using CRISPR system.
